Why we should avoid SEA WATER during Ship Hold Cleaning ?

Hardness of Seawater reducing Foaming Qualities of Aqua tuff.
Seawater also reducing the foaming qualities of the  any detergent.
As per chemistry law and detergency effect sea water reducing cleaning effect. 
Seawater increasing  corrosion risk to the surfaces and the equipment used and metal surface.
When mixing Aquatuf  with seawater Higher concentration of aquatuff required at least 20 – 25% (ratio 2:9 to 1-3).

Application:

Dependent on degree of contamination typical dosage is about 1-5%.

Light Soil ( general degreasing )   5-10% diluted with water.
Heavy Soil deposition                    Use Undiluted from to 20-50% diluted with water. 
Medium soil deposition                 10-20%  diluted with water. 

can be used for different types of cleaning, and it can be applied by brush, hand spray, High & Low pressure washing machines, by Direct Injections method but is mostly used by Recirculation method.

Removal of soot from Inert Gas Systems (IGS)
1.    Apply AQUATUFF – LIQUID  with a H.P. cleaning machine and use 1:4 with water. If used by hand spray, apply neat on the surface @ 1 ltr per 12m2.
2.    Leave for about 30 %u2013 45 minutes. The surface remains wet.
3.    Wash down with hot water at around 800 C. Repeat procedure 1 to 3, if required.    

Cargo tank and Cargo hold cleaning
AQUATUFF LIQUID  can be used for tank cleaning after animal, vegetable and fish oil, petroleum waxes, and for cargo hold cleaning after soot, coal, pet coke and other bulk materials using the following methods –

%u2022    Direct injection method with tank washing machines: Dosage rate 10-15 lts. per 1000 liters wash water (1-5%).
%u2022    Recirculation method: Use dosage rate of 20-50 liters per 1000 liter wash water.
%u2022    Spot Cleaning: Hand spray neat or prepare a 10-20 % solution. Leave for approx. 30 minutes before rinsing with water. Keep surface wet.

Pre-Wash
Before cleaning tanks with AQUATUFF  is recommended to pre-wash cargo tanks with hot water 50-60 0C.
For Drying oils and semi- drying oils a prewash of the tanks with cold water should be applied.

The efficient operating temperature varies and is depending upon the type of cargo residues which are to be cleaned. In cases like Palm oil residues the optimal solution temperature is between 55-65 0C at the tank cleaning machine nozzle. Higher temperature tends to bake on the residues rather than removing them.
Hydrogenated oils contain stearic acid with melting point of approx. 70 0C. to clean such cargo residues successfully, a temperature between 72-77 0C at the tank cleaning machine nozzle must be used.

NOTE : 20-50 % with fresh water . Also acts as an acid-neutralizing agent for Boiler & Colling systems during cleaning & maintenance.

Recomendation dose for High Pressure Cleaning Machine and use 1:4 with water. However, if used with a hand sprayer, apply the product neat on the surfaces, allowing 1 litre per 12m2. Then wait for 30-45 minutes. The surface remains wet. If there is any possibilities to heat water then wash down with hot water (80°C) to get maximum results.

Repeat the procedure if necessary.

For safe handling and optimal dilution we recommend the use of the UNITOR%u2122 MIXING STATION 4-14.

Removal of soot from Inert Gas Systems (IGS) 

Apply Unitor%u2122 Aquatuff%u2122 with a Unitor%u2122 High Pressure Cleaning Machine and use 1:4 with water. However, if used with a hand sprayer, apply the product neat on the surfaces, allowing 1 litre per 12m2.

Leave for about 30-45 minutes. The surface remains wet.

Wash down with hot water (80°C) and check the results.

Repeat the procedure if necessary.
